What an extraordinary year it has been! We started representing hair and makeup artists and fashion stylists and our business is all the better for it. We find ourselves blown away by the camaraderie of our agency creatives. No one could ever say that it is a difficult business to work in. The mutual support and general goodwill is evident between them at every shoot. They revel in being part of the Illuminate "family". Makes us proud!
As the only Brisbane based agency that represents Photographers and now creatives we are excited to say we have 19 photographers, 6 hair and makeup artists, 2 hairstylists, and 1 fashion stylist on the books. We are looking for more fashion stylists to help with out bookings…working on that.
Lately we have had many of our crew out there shooting Advertising jobs, Real Estate Developments, Retail Developments, Fashion, online stores Product shots, Lifestyle Shots, Tourism Shots, Fashion Lookbooks, Flat-lay fashion shots, National Magazine shoots, Nail manicurist for product Expo's, VIP hair and makeup, Model portfolios, Test shoots, Theatre and Arts photography. Busy days.
We have found that many clients and photographers are after support to produce their shoot. We can reduce the clients stress and time spent on organising their shoot. We help with casting and booking models, booking studios, location finding, sourcing specialised photo editors, finding and booking the whole creative team, understanding who is the right creative for the job, we do up the call sheets, confirm the crew, organise lunch, find transport, book accommodation and flights, taking delivery of stock, sourcing fashion stylists to help with the smooth running of the shoot. etc etc.
It is fantastic fun and we love what we do. As a business which is only a couple of years old, we are actively building our client base and managing our creatives. We do constant marketing to get the word out to our industry and we are humbled by the support we have received.
